Dublin Tall Ships 2012 seeks 150 Volunteers

2nd April 2012
Dublin Tall Ships 2012 seeks 150 Volunteers

Dublin is set to welcome The Tall Ships Race 2012 with magnificent vessels lining the city quays of the River Liffey from 23rd – 26th August. As final host port, Dublin can expect to see up to 1 million visitors, with a majestic fleet of ships and 3,000 crew expected to visit the city in one of the world's most spectacular maritime events.

As reported earlier on The Dublin Tall Ships Liaison Team is looking for 150 volunteers to help deliver this fantastic event by recruiting Volunteer Ship Liaison Officers to ensure smooth sailing from start to finish. Officers will be assigned to ships in order to provide support to Captains and crew, take part in the social and sporting events - and leave them with a lasting positive impression of Dublin!

Volunteers of all ages and levels of experience are invited to apply. Marine and language skills are highly sought but not required. Liaison training will be provided in the lead-up to the event.

The magnificent Tall Ships will form the backdrop to a 4-day long celebration, with a host of free events including live music on multiple stages around the Dublin Docklands area, street theatre, markets, fun fairs, and water sports - along with plenty of opportunities to board the ships in port, meet the crews and share their experiences on a Tall Ship.The Tall Ships Race is renowned around the world as one of the key highlights of the sailing calendar, as a leading tourist attraction and in terms of ability to deliver economic benefit to the host city.
